ISO basic vanilla layer cake for kid's birthday party.

My son (9) has asked me to make two birthday cakes for his party. He wants a chocolate layer cake and a vanilla one. I always use Hershey's Special Dark recipe for the chocolate cake, but I don't have a good recipe for the vanilla cake. Any recommendations?
(And wish us luck next Saturday--pool party!)

- You know, I can not find a consistent gram weight for cake flour. That annoys the AR part of me. [NT] - MarilynFL - 9:43pm on 06/24/18

- I'd just buy four 8" foil pans rather than making it in two steps. Rotate in oven, though. [NT] - MarilynFL - 10:50am on 06/25/18
- Good idea. I was wondering about that. [NT] - Amanda_Pennsylvania - 12:55pm on 06/25/18
- ...or maybe you don't really need a 4-layer cake since you're having another cake. Split the recipe [NT] - MarilynFL - 4:48pm on 06/25/18
- Thanks, everyone. I'm going to have to try them all! [NT] - Amanda_Pennsylvania - 4:40am on 06/25/18
- So after all that, Himself now wants a cake from Wegman's. Go figure. - Amanda_Pennsylvania - 10:49pm on 06/28/18
